Cheesy Zucchini Fritters (vegetarian) / Popečci sa sirom i tikvicama (vegetarijanski)

I’m having a hard time grasping that it’s September already. The weather has already shifted and the end of summer is imminent and final. This whole year has been super strange and my notions of the passage of time have been somewhat distorted. But we can still enjoy those last breaths of summer and delicious summer produce. So why not another zucchini recipe, for good old times sake?

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Shred the zucchini, sprinkle with ½ tsp of salt and allow to rest for about 10 minutes to release moisture. After 10 minutes, give the zucchini a good squeeze, then drain and discard all excess liquid. Add in the remaining salt and all other ingredients and stir until everything is well combined and uniform.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then scoop out the zucchini mixture and flatten into patties. Bake for about 30 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown on the outside. Be sure to flip the patties once halfway through to ensure even browning on both sides. Serve up with a nice salad and a sauce of your choice.

Malo mi je teško priviknuti se na činjenicu da je već rujan. Vrijeme nam se već promijenilo tako da je kraj ljeta sasvim neizbježan i konačan. Uz to što je cijela ova godina bila skroz čudna, moj osjećaj za protek vremena je također distorziran. Ali i dalje možemo uživati u tom zadnjem dašku ljeta i ukusnom ljetnom povrću. Tako da, zašto ne još jedan recept sa tikvicama, za dobra stara vremena?

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 15 popečaka / 1,57 kn po popečku / 23,56 kn za sve)

2 velike tikvice (6,00 kn)

1 žličica soli, podijeljena (0,01 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka, fino nasjeckana (0,50 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

2 žličice ljutog čili umaka (0,50 kn)

3 jaja (4,50 kn)

2 šalice ribanog topljivog sira – ja sam uzela gaudu (6,00 kn)

½ šalice fino ribanog tvrdog sira (3,00 kn)

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,00 kn)

¼ šalice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,50 kn)

4 žlice kukuruznog škroba (1,00 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Naribajte tikvice, posolite sa ½ žličice soli i ostavite 10-tak minuta da puste vodu. Nakon 10 minuta dobro iscijedite tikvice i bacite svu tekućinu, pa im dodajte ostatak soli i sve ostale sastojke. Dobro sve promiješajte da se sjedini.

Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje, pa na njega grabite smjesu tikvica i formirajte popečke. Pecite 30-tak minuta, dok popečci ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi, s time da ih preokrenete jednom za vrijeme pečenja kako bi na obje strane dobili lijepu boju. Poslužite popečke sa nekom finom salatom i umakom po vašem izboru.
